As part of our visit to IBM for the Raspberry Pi day we had a tour of IBM's museum. During the tour we were shown some of IBM's typewriters and after a long (but concise) explanation of the development of the typewriter, one of the kids asked what did these 'typewriter' things do? It never struck the rest of us adults that most of the children would never have seen one of these before.
NEW! Weekend Tech Club
Can't wait for the next holidays for more Tech Camps? Join our tutors for weekly hands-on tech workshops in your own home every Saturday and Sunday!
We have created a brand new Weekend Tech Club packed full of STEM projects for kids aged 9-12. The Tech Club is a 10-week programme of weekly 90-minute sessions, featuring at least 3-4 lessons every term involving physical equipment we'll ship to you!
This term's practical projects involve building electric circuits, a UV torch, investigating handwashing techniques, creating a 'buzz-wire' game, and even designing your own Christmas ornament in 3D which we'll laser-cut out and ship to you in time for Christmas!
Options available for Saturdays and Sundays. Weekend Clubs start 19th and 20th September.
